Amazing arete!


Wow, this thing is amazing! Climb up steep and featureless arete.
The face to the right of the arete is steep and blank, but would be a futuristic problem on its own.


Just left(south) of the Prow Project. Downhill and south of Massive Vertigo by approx. 50-75ft.


Pads and spotters.

Whoa! How's the landing?

It's not bad, but not great either. With a stack of pads and a couple solid spotters it should be ok.

If you go out to the south bluff, hike up like you are going to the ejaculator, but then traverse east into the talus, you will find a boulder a little bigger than this one at about the same angle. Its pretty easy to see if you are in the area

This picture surely does not do this line justice. It is BEAUTIFUL! the arete is like sculped to be pinched and slapped. really pretty line. rough landing as it stands. and not much to speak about for hands on the face. there are these slight dimpley slopes but nothing much. we ran out of time so we didnt get to try it.

I noticed that there is potential for a couple other great lines on the right side of the boulder. I tried the starts to both, but without many pads(or spot) I didn't commit, nasty landings and needs more cleaning.

I am coming down next weekend and would like to try this. Can you reach around the corner? is it really cool? I am brining all of my pads so it should be fun? Will I need a rope to clean it?

Yes Nic, get on it!!! You might want the rope to clean. There is a few other lines on this boulder to the right that should go as well. You should also try the Half Dome project and the Falling Pieces project, both are good and hard, oh and send the Prow while your at it.

What about reaching around the arete to the slab looking thing on the left side of the photo? Can you reach it from the start? I am going to bring a rope and some cams and give her a scrub.
